I appreciate the simplistic, lo-fi visual style. This short film is filled with sadness, confusion, loneliness and spiced up with great wry humour. While deep and personal, the film somehow didn't resonate with me enough; I think the mentioned visual style didn't match the overall tone and story presented here.
Ah, this is why I love MUBI. I can't imagine I'd have come across this through any of my normal channels. Giving it a star rating feels wrong. It is what it is. I found it hypnotising. At certain points I felt that recognition of "I'm not alone in feeling that". That's the sort of feeling you get from a great novel. The last 1/3 is especially wonderful. If you like Synecdoche New York - you might like this.
Very sad, very beautiful, very uplifting, very unsettling. Bill, the title character, is losing his memory while starting to understand the meaning of what surrounds him. The surreal ending adds to its charm, as Bill's spirit seems to float away in an endless universe. The spare animation style and use of vivid window panes opening to the world juxtapose drab existence and greater beauty. A gem of a film.
A true horror film, though entirely unlike any other in that genre. It felt like an attempt to explore the mind set of a number of different drug induced mental disorders. I say this, perhaps, because the last ten minutes seemed precisely to follow the never-forgotten narrative of an LSD experience from my youth fifty years ago.
This is such a beautiful film... It will make you appreciate life and the little things. The music and sound design are amazing, as well as the visual aspects of the film. Half way through the film it gets repetitive with the animation style and the narrator speaking, but other than that this is a gem of a movie. Very emotional.
